These Are The Category Of People God Will Never Give His Anointing – Pastor Adeboye Reveals

Pastor E. A. Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God spoke to his members about why they need to be hardworking and avoid laziness if they do want to receive God’s anointing in their lives.

He said that God will never give His anointing to somebody who is slothful. In Proverbs 18:9, God describes the lazy man as a waster, He won’t waste His anointing on you if you’re lazy. 

“That is why I am hammering the issue of hard work and diligence. It takes hard work to become a champion. I used to be a boxer, I told you that, I don’t look like one now, if I box now, I only box the devil,” he said. So, it takes harder work to remain a champion than to become one.

According to him, the anointed cannot afford to be lazy. Isaiah 61:1-3. God did not anoint Isaiah to sit down and fold his arms. No! But to preach the good news. You may start at Jerusalem but you’re going to go to Judaea and then you will proceed to Samaria and then to the outermost part of the world. 


Anointing is not for laziness, it is for hard work, you’re to preach. You’re to heal. The moment you have a healing gift, the crowd will come. 

Jesus healed Peter’s mother-in-law and in the evening, they brought all those who are sick and demon-possessed, the news spread and people began to come. My Lord Himself, when He saw the multitude when the crowd became overwhelming, He dodged, He had to go somewhere else.

He then said that if you want to anoint and you’re not ready for hard work. You have a lot to do, you will preach, you will heal, you will comfort the broken hearted, anybody in any form of trouble will call on you, you’re to set the captives free, all the people with demons will be paying you constant visit and if you know what casting out demons means, it means in Ephesians 6:12, it means to wrestle with the forces of darkness. Is wrestling for the lazy? You’ll be setting captives free.

Finally, he said, “One of my sons was asking me not too long ago, oh Daddy I heard that you travelled abroad, I said yes. What for? I said I went on vacation. He said vacation, I said yes.

He asked, how many sermons did you preach on your vacation? Not many may be just 2 in England and then we moved on to have a convention in Europe. He then said is that really a vacation? I said yes. If you are not ready for hard work please don’t pray for the anointing. Anointing is not for lazy people.”
